Appointment with Death | [Agatha Christie]

Appointment with Death

Among the towering red cliffs of Petra, like some monstrous swollen Buddha, sat the corpse of Mrs Boynton. A tiny puncture mark on her wrist was the only sign of the fatal injection that had killed her. With only 24 hours available to solve the mystery, Hercule Poirot recalled a chance remark he'd overheard back in Jerusalem: 'You see, don't you, that she's got to be killed?' Mrs Boynton was, indeed, the most detestable woman he'd ever met.

    "PETRA"

    I HAD NO DESIRE TO DRAW ATTENTION TO MYSELF
    The narration and production are top notch. I have been very happy with the BBC Productions. Although I wonder if the adaptation this time did not take away from Christie's writing. That or this story was just not as interesting as a mystery. I liked some of the other Mysteries better. This seemed to be more about a crabby old woman, then a mystery.

    "Good listen"

    Story was a little tricky to follow because of various characters. Nice twist towards the end though. Actors good.

    "Typical Christie"

    Easy listen, enjoyable yarn, for those days when you need to multitask. This doesn't detract from its old world charm

    "Love her archaeological settings"

    Agatha Christie knew these locations well. I feel I am learning about the landscape and history at the same time as listening to a good whodunit .
